Ondo State alone has 9 higher institutions including Universities, Polytechnics and College of Education and on this post, I’m going to show students in Akure especially FUTA students what jobs they can do to make money. If you don’t have money to spend, you will not enjoy schooling in Akure because university demands you spend and be spent. Being a university or college student doesn’t come cheap to some students.

So what do you do to make money while in the university? Well, you can do a whole lot. There are a lot of easy jobs for university students that will get you the extra money you need, without requiring too much time away from your coursework.

This work can be offline or online. Either way, money must be made. There are jobs that require huge capital to start, but I am not here to show you that. What you’re about to read are ways to make money easily in the university.

This is the list of student jobs in Akure


Do you excel at a particular subject? Consider tutoring a younger student or even one of your colleagues in the same department for are finding a particular course difficult. You can set up a tutorial class for a Pre-degree student. The most common way to earn more in the university is to tutor new students on General Studies (GST).

Laundry business.

Another student jobs in Akure laundry service. Many lecturers do not have time to do laundry; these are your potential customers. You don’t need a shop to start making money from offering laundry service in the university. Just the way you wash your clothes, you can earn money by washing clothes for others. There is no shame in this kind of business. The more customer you have, the more money you make.

Commercial transport.

Another student jobs in Akure commercial driving. If you have your own personal car or motorbike, you can make a living while living in Akure surroundings. While some can afford to drive around for fun, you should drive to make money. Akure is a very good place to start a driving business because of the good express road.

Data Entry

80%of university students are usually not computer literate. If you have a personal laptop and you’re good at typing, you can easily make money in the university by telling your colleague to give you their assignments that demand data entry or typing. You can also inform business centres around FUTA nearby of your typing skills. They will gladly call you and offer you typing jobs they cannot handle in a short time frame.

Become a restaurant server

At every nook and corner of FUTA, you will always find a food restaurant and that’s because students eat a lot. Some student does not and may never cook while they school. They prefer to eat in a restaurant. Do you want to make money in the FUTA? One easy way is to own a restaurant or be a server. The latter is easier because you won’t bother about how food is produced or the number of customers. Your job is to serve.

I had a friend who helped himself through the university by being a restaurant server. He was never ashamed because he needed the money. You may not get paid hourly, but you can negotiate the time.


Can you barb? If you’re a lady, can you make hair? If you’re good, customers will find you. This kind of hustling is popular in FUTA, especially among female students. You don’t need a shop. Like I mentioned earlier, If you’re good, your work will announce you. The more customer you have, the more you make money.
